In SL30 this thing is a godsend. It deals the most damage out of all ultras because they need to be 2handed w/ heavy infusion, while this only needs a raw infusion. Even better is because it's 1 handed and 2 handed damage is similar, you can keep a party hand free most of the time. The range is great for beating up gankers, charge works well for catching rolls and chasing people (careful though). You can wear good armor cause it's stupid light and it's rolling attack is godly, really *****ing fast, really *****ing powerful, even though it's been needed its still amazing at shutting down someone who's chasing you, or as a mixup in duels. I mean it's no DSA or longsword, but if you want a quick option for poise without building around it in SL30, Raw AGS +3. Make sure to buff it with bundles whenever you can.
